One of the many things audiences might expect from the December 13, 2011 (“Panda 2sday”), DVD/Blu-ray release of Kung Fu Panda 2  probably isn’t a visit to scripture, yet its story echoes elements of the story of Moses, whom you may remember from another film, The Prince of Egypt (1998), also from Dreamworks. However, Kung Fu Panda 2 is in no way a religious film. It does not feature bible stories, commandments, or miracles.

KidTunes: Chanukah Fever is Chanukah Gelt

Mama Doni celebrates Chanukah with a CD that looks like a nice big piece of Chanukah gelt, crammed with rocking holiday tunes that range from disco to country to rock to ethnic to big band to funk, Chanukah Fever. Lyrics that share Chanukah tradition are set to irresistibly animated music. Even the rhythmically-challenged will find themselves rockin’ around the Chanukah bush.

When I left the North eleven years ago, I had no idea that I would end up in the mountains of North Carolina where latkes, blintzes, and pierogi can’t be found. Mama Doni knows that latkes are something to sing about (“Latke Man,” “The Legend of Sour Cream vs. Applesauce”); she makes me homesick for the great ethnic foods left behind. And glorious latkes aren’t the only food that Mama Doni celebrates—sufganiyot is saluted in “A Land Called Sufganiyot” where it’s Chanukah every day, and “Honey, This Ain’t Money!” sings the praises of gelt.

Other songs hail bubbies, dreidels, Ma-oz Tzur, and menorahs, and teach a little Yiddish along with the difference between saying “Hanukkah” and “Chanukah.” It’s a bundle of fun, totally respectful, and absolutely Jewish—ideal for honoring both Chanukah and heritage.

Mary Magdalan is a true fighter.

In the past two years Magdalan has single-handedly sold over 30,000 records and has topped out over 1 million downloads all from the confines of her Hollywood apartment and without a single stitch of assistance from a record label or big time management firm.

Now Mary enters a new chapter of her career with her new album DIGI.N3RV. "This album saved my life", exclaims Magdalan of her new CD. "When I went into the recording process for this album I knew that if I was to re-create some of my older music that I might not make it through". The album shows yet another side of Mary Magdalan and is a head first dive into future sounds by combining dubstep, hip hop & electro with subtle layers of rock on this 14 song disc.

In order to keep up with major players in the industry Mary decided to do a full on visual assault for DIGI.N3RV and has filmed four music videos for songs off of the album which she will drop every two weeks for the next two months. "My goal was to do music videos for every song on the album, which I still may end up doing", says Mary of her upcoming video releases. The first music video to be released is "The Wicked Ones," a dubstep/hiphop body mover filmed on location during her most recent 35 city US Tour. Videos for other songs off of DIGI.N3RV including "Rudegirl", "Hollywood" and "Electro Fashion Punk" will be released throughout September and October.
